People run for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes those reasons change, but everyone has some point of motivation that drives them to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I have all kinds of reasons why I run – and yes, some are more serious than others – but I like to think I could outrun a serial killer chasing me down. There’s always a “survivor” in a horror film!
I’m a huge movie buff and have been my whole life, I especially have a thing for horror movies and sometimes those can play a part in my motivation. Just for fun of course, I like to imagine being chased by someone.
I thought about this a lot more when I first started running, but every once in a while I will watch a movie and am reminded of the ridiculous ways people try to escape from the killer/monster/zombie. I always think to myself, I would just run and run and run. Seriously, what are the chances that this villain can survive miles and miles of a foot chase?
There are a couple races out there that play off this idea, but I’m not sure if I would ever do one, it might ruin my hypothetical chase that I like to keep locked up in my mind. Of course this is all for fun, but it’s definitely something I’ve thought a lot about because it’s hard not to think about when you watch so many horror movies.
What are the top 3 villains I imagine running from?
I run long distances to assure my survival, so until Leatherface can run a marathon, I’m going to keep imagining myself as the survivor!
What villain would make you run the fastest? Are you running away from anything literally or metaphorically? Please share in the comment section below.
